Writing an Insight Article for the AGI

The AGI provides industry thought leadership and Insight through a number of streams – from events, to in-depth reviews such as the Foresight Report and articles for members.

We are particularly keen to encourage professionals provide their personal insight into current issues which are impacting on Geographic Information and the opportunities for the industry to respond to this.

We value and appreciate the input that your views will have to help us continue our mission and support our members. Your article will be seen by over 2000 geospatial professionals in the UK and overseas and promoted across a range of outlets – to both AGI members and non-members alike.

Insight articles should provide a thought-provoking window into your area of work and some personal reflection based on your expertise.

Although not prescriptive, here are some recommendations for writing an article:

  • Aim to entertain, provide insight and challenge the reader with your thoughts.
  • Tackle current issues in your area of expertise.
  • Think how your topic might be influenced by or influence the geospatial sector.
  • Try not to use jargon but aim to appeal to the general reader - AGI members work in a variety of different industries and come from many backgrounds.
  • Don’t overtly mention or promote commercial products.
  • Articles should be around 500 words in length.
  • Provide a short biography of yourself and a photograph - these will be included with the article.

We hope you will be able to contribute and we look forward to hearing from you.

Map-making is in rude health, but what of cartography?

'We’ve all heard and seen the meme’s that have heralded the death of cartography, the death of the printed map and so forth but these slow-news-month scare stories couldn’t be further from the truth. More maps are made by more people than ever before. Map-making is in rude health…but what of cartography?'

This Insight for AGI Members is from Dr Kenneth Field, a self-confessed cartonerd. After 20 years in UK academia he now works at Esri in cartographic research and development.

An Insight into Open Addressing

'Data is becoming democratised as storage, processing and analysis capabilities increase. Companies, NGOs and individuals are increasingly capable of, and demand to be able to, use geospatial data alongside other data in performing their own analyses to answer their own questions. Enabling free use of data can help organisations and individuals to make better decisions, supporting more effective economic activity and healthier and happier lifestyles.'

Jeni Tennison, Technical Director of the Open Data Institute, provides an Insight on Open Addressing.
